Neighbourhood Decision Making Ideas Announced


The results are in! Residents from every neighbourhood of the city have participated in London’s city-wide 2018 Neighbourhood Decision Making (NDM) program. More than 7,100 Londoners helped decide what neighbourhood enhancement projects will be funded by voting online (5,680) or at their local library branch (1,434) on Saturday, June 16.

“The Neighbourhood Decision Making program is such a great way for Londoners to decide on what type of investment they’d like in their own community,” said Mayor Matt Brown. “It’s amazing to see the creativity and passion behind the projects. Thank you to all those who submitted ideas and voted.”

A total of $250,000 was available, with the city divided into five geographic areas, each area receiving $50,000 for projects to help make London’s many great neighbourhoods even better.

“We are excited to see the energy and enthusiasm of Londoners of all ages participating in submitting ideas and voting for their favourite ideas” says Lynne Livingstone, Managing Director of Neighbourhood Children and Fire Services.  “Neighbourhood Decision Making is a fantastic example of Londoners participating in making great neighbourhoods.”
